[ubuntu-us-ut] Someone is re-writing my /etc/resolv.conf

This is a total hack, but I add the 'i' attribute:

jedwards at linuxbox:~$ sudo -s
root at linuxbox:~# lsattr /etc/resolv.conf
------------------ /etc/resolv.conf
root at linuxbox:~# chattr +i /etc/resolv.conf
root at linuxbox:~# lsattr /etc/resolv.conf
----i------------- /etc/resolv.conf
root at linuxbox:~# echo "nameserver" >> /etc/resolv.conf
bash: /etc/resolv.conf: Permission denied
root at linuxbox:~#

I'm interested to hear the correct way to do this...
